Due to public health concerns related to the coronavirus outbreak, we saw no alternative but to cancel the 12th International Summer School on Radar/SAR 2020. The health and safety of our attendees, partners, presenters, and colleagues is of the utmost importance to us. We were forced to consider the growing risk of exposure, especially in the German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen (North Rhine-Westphalia), where our event is located.

This was a painful decision for us, but your health and safety are just too important. We’re already looking forward to bouncing back with style for 2021. The 13th Summerschool will take place from  02.-09. July 2021.

Thank you very much for your understanding.

Learning ... and Enjoying!

In July 2021, Fraunhofer FHR will host the 13th International Summer School on Radar/SAR.

Get deep insights into radar and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) techniques from international experts while connecting with new and renowned members of the radar community!

The event is open to students, postgraduates and young professionals from universities and industry who are involved with radar/SAR and related areas. In engaging courses, international specialists will teach you the fine details of radar/SAR technology – from the basics to modern systems and all the way to cutting-edge signal processing algorithms. The courses are followed by workshops where you will have a chance to directly apply your new skills. The event site will be available exclusively for the Summer School and the group size is limited to 45 participants to guarantee an intensive and focused learning environment as well as a dynamic exchange of knowledge between participants and lecturers.

On top of that, excursions, cultural offers, and social events at the UNESCO world heritage site known as the “Upper Middle Rhine Valley” and in the cities of Cologne and Bonn will provide plenty of opportunities for relaxed networking.
